I love all births but this one is extra special. You see, Caitlin and Tyler are my first bride and groom to book me for their birth story.

I photographed their wedding about 2 years ago. (And yes, the previous post is about Tyler’s brother and his family) I love these two a whole bunch!

I have known both Evan and Rachel for almost my whole life. Rachel is my cousin and we grew up made three-tenths of a mile from each other. Our families went to church together and were pretty close so we would see each other at family parties/picnics and we sometimes spent the night together. Evan […]

Over the past couple years Heather and Jordan have become good friends. You see, Heather was my neighbor growing up but she was homeschooled so we never knew each other. We both went off to college at Liberty University, still not knowing each other. My dad ran into her dad one day and they realized […]

A couple weeks ago I got a call that started out a little strange.

“Hi Emily, I have something I need you to photograph but no one can know about it.”

That can only mean one thing….A PROPOSAL!
